This is now the Moment. All of them, the Ministers, the military, the deputies were asked whether or not these old friends would bring something New, in the ballroom of the Bavarian court. Now you know it.
Ivanka Trump holds the headphones with the Translation in a short distance from the ear to protect the welfare of your Styling and looks, as she could not believe what she just heard. "We are proud of our cars. We may also," says Angela Merkel. The Chancellor can't believe that the decision of German cars in the United States as a national security risk, and to impose punitive tariffs, will now appear before actually, and it shows. "If these cars are built in South Carolina, are suddenly a threat to the national security of the United States, then that scares us," she says. It is the moment in which it becomes clear: The German Chancellor has, in fact, something New brought.
Angela Merkel looks for her appearance on the 55. Munich security conference as replaced. You hide your message in a thicket of technocratic box sets. The Chancellor speaks in plain text. The Americans get their fat, and the Russians, but also the Chinese. So what happens comparatively rarely happens. The guests at the Bayerischer Hof to experience the history, at least history conference.
as of 2007, when Russian President Vladimir Putin to toss the West of the gauntlet. Or 2003, when the then Federal Minister, Joschka Fischer, US Secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld in a dispute over a military Intervention in Iraq, outside of his "I am not convinced" hurled at. Of Merkel's appearance in 2019, a surprisingly cheerful willingness to fight will remain in the memory of the one declared in the hall less and less with the world situation as with the German interior policy. If Merkel acts exempt, then most likely from the load of the CDU presidency.
"And we sit there..."
it's fitting that she has stopped pushing for migration policy Workshop meeting of the Union now have their own small contribution. "At the time, we helped in a humanitarian emergency," she says about the year 2015. Merkel gives nothing, takes nothing. "It's been, so far, has to do with it, that we have not taken care of," she says. So the political message in Merkel's added to the outside of a political plea.
For this plea, you get up to Alexander von Humboldt, born 250 years ago. Its Credo was: "All-in-interaction." The world must be understood as a Whole, appeals to Merkel, consequently, what is the same applies of course to the father, in the audience seated Ivanka. Yes, says Merkel, many of today's structures in the world stemmed from the period after the Second world war. You would have to be reformed. "But," asked the Chancellor, "we must not destroy it".
It is an appeal, the Merkel, finally, through the example of the termination of the INF disarmament Treaty, the nuclear-tipped missiles, medium-Europe route had banished. This was a Treaty between the United States and Russia, the subjects but the security of Europe. Now he will quit and "we sit there". The termination was because of the Russian Treaty violation "inevitable", but now it had to give a major contract with China. You know, she turns to Yang Jiechi, the man from Beijing Politburo in the hall that there is "a lot of reservations", but you would be very happy. Since all the clapping in the hall.
Merkel ends with a plea for multilateralism
in Succession, Merkel runs the controversial issues of the German foreign policy. You know, that Germany "does not stand criticism", because it will reach the Two percent target of the Nato fast enough, which, by 2024, a Highlight of two percent of gross domestic product. Of 1.18 per cent in 2014, it will be until 2024 to 1.5 percent climb, says Merkel. "That's not enough, but for us, this is an essential leap," she says. Germany was a reliable ally and, as such, about a presence in Afghanistan. Speaking of Afghanistan, Since they have the "very warm", and decide on the future of the Mission together. This one goes out to Donald Trump, toying with it, the troops from the Hindu Kush to be deducted, as well as from Syria.
will Also carry the controversial Nord Stream Baltic sea Pipeline 2, the Gas from Russia to Germany, defended Merkel. "It is right and important that Europe retains in some way the sovereignty over its gas supply and the diversity of its gas supply," she says. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in the audience, you will be insured again, for the continued use of the Ukrainian Pipelines, but a "Russian gas molecule" remain "Russian gas molecule" – no matter which tube it flowed.
her speech ended Merkel with an appeal for multilateralism. It was difficult, but to solve in any case, better things "together". For this, Merkel garners a standing ovation, which sounds almost as just something like a legacy had been heard. In a short question round, you should at least balance. "Not so good", says Merkel, "the need is often for a very long time" before it to outside political commitment resolutions could be. But it was reliable.
Merkel looks relaxed after the success of their speech, to be relaxed, maybe a little bit. When she comes to speak to the hybrid warfare, the influence of the Russians, brings you the indirectly, in connection with the student strikes against the climate policy. The commitment welcomes you, but the fact that the students come in large numbers "all of a sudden the idea" to go on the road, she could not imagine, she says. A Manifestation of this, which could prepare the outside of a politician, Merkel in Trouble is – in the internal policy. (Tages-Anzeiger)
